The world’s BEST easy vegan pecan pie recipe that’s completely gluten free, dairy free, and a fourth of the sugar that traditional pecan pie has, yet tastes like the classic! Made with a vegan pie crust and simple ingredients, it’s the best pecan pie you’ll ever make!



Vegan Pecan Pie Filling:

  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan heavy cream, coconut milk or dairy free milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp ground flaxseed with 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tbsp arrowroot starch or powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. Make the pie crust: First prepare the pie crust according to the vegan flaky pie crust recipe. You will need to par-bake it. Once the pie crust is par-baked, begin to make the filling.
  2. Toast: Preheat the oven to 350F. While the oven is preheating, lay the pecan halves onto a baking sheet lined with tin foil. Place the pecan halves into the oven to toast for 7 minutes, or until fragrant. Remove from the oven and let cool. Keep the oven on at 350F.
  3. Mix: Whisk together the coconut milk, vanilla, coconut sugar, arrowroot powder, and maple syrup together until there are no more clumps of arrowroot starch in a medium saucepan.
  4. Heat: Continue to mix the mixture on medium-heat until it begins to thicken, about 4-5 minutes. Then Remove from heat and pour the mixture into a large bowl.
  5. Stir in the flaxseed: Let the mixture cool for 5 minutes, then add in the flaxseed mixture, and mix together. Stir until the mixture is completely mixed. Set aside.
  6. Fold in the pecan halves: Add in the pecan halves and fold until evenly coated.
  7. Bake: Remove the pie crust from the fridge, and pour mixture into the pie crust. Arrange the pecan halves if you desire. Bake the pie for 30 minutes with crust covered with tinfoil or a pie crust shield around the pie crust edges. Then remove the pie shield and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the filling has set.
  8. Serve: Remove from the oven and allow to cool at room temperature for 1-2 hours before serving.
